  • About Hiscox

    As an international specialist insurer we are far removed from the world of mass market insurance products. Instead we are selective and focus on our key areas of expertise and strength - all of which is underpinned by a culture that encourages us to challenge convention and always look for a better way of doing things.

    We insure the unique and the interesting. And we search for the same when it comes to talented people. Hiscox is full of smart, reliable human beings that look out for customers and each other.

    We believe in doing the right thing, making good and rebuilding when things go wrong. Everyone is encouraged to think creatively, challenge the status quo and look for solutions.

    Scratch beneath the surface and you will find a business that is solid, but slightly contrary. We like to do things differently and constantly seek to evolve.

    We might have been around for a long time (our roots go back to 1901), but we are young in many ways, ambitious and going places.

    Some people might say insurance is dull, but life at Hiscox is anything but. If that sounds good to you, get in touch.

    Diversity and flexible working at Hiscox

    At Hiscox we care about our people. We hire the best people for the job and we’re committed to diversity and creating a truly inclusive culture, which we believe drives success.

    No promises, but please chat to our resourcing team about the flexibility we could offer for this role.
